Tres Generaciones® Triple Distilled Tequila
The First Generation
DON CENOBIO SAUZA
Don Cenobio Sauza founded the Sauza tequila distillery, "La Perseverancia," and was the first to export tequila outside Mexico, helping it to become one of the world's great spirits.
The Second Generation
DON ELADIO SAUZA
At the age of 26, Don Eladio Sauza took over the family business and brought it to new heights, massively expanding the business and championing the name and birthplace of the spirit as "Tequila" when exporting to America.
The Third Generation
DON FRANCISCO JAVIER SAUZA
Don Francisco Javier Sauza, known as the first global ambassador of tequila, carefully crafted a small batch of tequila to commemorate his family’s 100 years and three generations of wisdom and skill in tequila-making, creating tequila we know of today as Tres Generaciones.

Our Unique Process
Tres Generaciones is produced at the same distillery where Don Cenobio began everything in 1873 - Destileria La Perseverancia. Our agave is hand-selected by our Master Distiller only when perfectly ripe, after 6-8 years. We fresh-press our agave, extracting the juice before it is cooked, resulting in reduced bitterness and a crisp, agave-forward flavor.
After cooking and fermenting our agave, we distill our tequila three times, rather than the typical two distillations process. As pioneers of this method, we believe this extra step removes any remaining impurities in our tequila, producing a more refined flavor without any harshness or burn.
The result? Unrivaled nuance and smoothness in every sip.
